Although literary characterisations of the city are often female, urban space is predominantly masculine. Those who govern, manage and regulate public space are mostly men. This domination manifests itself in the freedom that men enjoy in contrast to the consignment of women to domestic roles. The fear that women experience at night due to ‘masculine incivilities’ further demonstrates that women do not have the same ‘spatial citizenship’ as men. This book is interested in the ways cities are thought of and appropriated according to one’s gender. It also puts forward examples of better practices to foster more equal, inclusive public spaces.
